THEME

Masculine Vs Feminine

Do not be fooled as this is not your typical match of women pitted against men. This year we want the most feminine characters to go against the most masculine characters of the nerd universe! Characters like Nuriko from Fushigi Yuugi, Sailor Neptune from Sailor Moon, and Ranka from Ouran High School Host Club are perfect examples of characters that qualify to battle for the Feminine side.

Where characters like Armstrong from Full Metal Alchemist, Sailor Uranus from Sailor Moon, and Guts from Berserk are excellent examples of those that would battle for the Masculine side.

Pick your side wisely and don’t count anyone out. Who will come out victorious in a battle where the toughest and manliest of characters are pitted against those that seem pretty and dainty yet can still pack a punch. You won’t want to miss it so be sure to come and witness Cosplay Chess 2013!
